Functional Family Medicine: the only Direct Primary Care medical practice in Albuquerque, NM

iCrowdNewswire - May 11, 2015

Functional Family Medicine

Albuquerque, NM 87120, US

Functional Family Medicine is the only Direct Primary Care medical practice in Albuquerque, NM. Direct Primary Care practices are opening their doors all across the country. DPC is primary health care with insurance removed from the equation. We do not take insurance. We have a membership based business model in which our members pay a low monthly fee. They receive same and next day appointments, on time visits and unhurried time with their provider. We have no co-pays, no-deductiables, no insurance headaches at all.

In our model the provider is free to deliver real personalized care to our members. An insurance company is not making the decisions about our member’s health care. Those decisions are between the patient and the provider, like they should be. Our members receive unlimited visits and around the clock access to their provider. We make house calls, at no additional cost, if our members are too sick to come to the office. One of our medical staff will over see a member’s care if they should need to be hospitalized, in person. The level of care we provide is unparalleled.

The average wait time national to see a primary care provider is nineteen days with an average of office visit of eight to twelve minutes. That is not health care. That is sickness management, at best! We are all acutely aware of the heath care crisis facing our country. Their is a huge shortfall of primary care providers and that shortage is increasing daily. There are less and less providers and more and more people in need of and gaining access to health care insurance. The health care bases primary care insurance model is broken. That reality has caused a huge oppertunity for Direct Primary Care practices.

The margins in the Direct Primary Practice model are unbelievable. The market is literally untouched the growth potential and market stability are unquestionable. There is good reason that the Direct Primary Care model is the fastest growing form of primary care in America.

I love making ideas become reality and creating profitable companies. Marketing, business management, leadership and a highly driven personality are things that have come naturally to me. My back ground and education are as a typical as they come. My successes in life have been equally a typical. I have never failed at a business or personal goal. I take immense pride in being know by everyone I know and have done business as being a man of my word and beyond reproach ethically. Ethical business comes prior to profit for me. If that is not something you are comfortable with you should look else where for an investment. I have made huge profit margins in the companies I have started and owned. The secret ingredient I bring to the table is that I take care of my people and investors before myself.

Rodger JohnsonRodger Johnson is a RN with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. In nursing school his two main interests were adequate pain treatment and wound care. After a few years working in hospitals, Rodger went into home healthcare, helping patients where they lived. This led to hospice work, which also was about caring for people in their home, treating them holistically during their end of life journey. This experience is a valuable gift that Rodger freely shares with patients and their families experiencing end of life issues. In the past few years both Camille and Rodger have become interested in functional medicine. This innovative healthcare model provides a framework to create health, not simply treat symptoms or diseases by themselves, but as connected to all of our body’s systems
